To provide clarification and practice of Adverbs of frequency in the context of A day off
To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a text about Activities done in Sundays in the context of A day off
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Teacher gives students the opportunity to describe the pictures and give the main idea of each one. He has to check if the students know the target language which will be presented in the next stage: early, late, tired and busy.
Students will be provided with an audio. They listen to it and take notes of what Pete and Maggie always do on Sundays. After, the teacher checks if they understand the meaning of always, every, ever, sometimes, usually.
Teacher provides students with the reading passage (ex.2b pg.44) and let them check if their answers are true or false, then teacher provides them with the correct answer.
In pairs, students will read the text 2.b pg.44 again and answer the question: "What do Pété and Maggie always do together on Sundays?"
In groups, students reorder the adverbs of frequency in their correct order and describe their own from the list provided by the teacher.
Students use adverbs of frequency depending on the amount of time they spend on their activities. For example, a student says: "I always eat out at the weekend" means that he eats out every weekend.
Teacher asks students to write a paragraph describing their daily activities using the adverbs of frequency taught before: "never, always, sometimes, usually."
